For Tudor Gossip Fans

Philippa Gregory, author of The Other Boleyn Girl, part of her Tudor series, reviews G.W. Bernard’s Anne Boleyn: Fatal Attractions in the L.A. Times, saying it is a fresh look at Henry VIII’s most controversial wife,

This is a disturbing book for the reader of Tudor history, as it carefully analyzes and then demolishes many of the statements that we are accustomed to taking as facts about the life of Anne Boleyn. Indeed, any student of any history will feel the earth shake slightly as G.W. Bernard boldly states the open secret: that most of the written record is hopelessly biased, based on gossip and speculation, that witnesses lie and that historians seek their own version of events.
